Editor's note: There is one image associated with this press release.

El Tigre Silver Corp. ("El Tigre" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ELS)(FRANKFURT:5RT)(OTCQX:EGRTF) is pleased to announce the assay results of a recently completed extensive underground and surface sampling exploration program at its El Tigre Silver and Gold Project ("the Project") in northern Sonora, Mexico. A total of 173 underground and 393 surface samples were collected as channel samples from outcrops, as well as 25 stream samples and 27 regional samples from the main El Tigre Vein district.

The sampling program was undertaken in the 3rd quarter of 2013 and focused on obtaining horizontal channel samples by cutting a two inch (5 cm) wide channel in the rock, and then chiseling out the rock with a hammer to collect samples. This method of sampling is done to collect a series of continuous samples similar to a horizontal drill hole and will assist in defining any surface mineralization that could correlate with the underlying drill intercepts. This program concentrated on the main El Tigre vein district consisting of the El Tigre Viejo canyon, Gold Hill area and the Espuelas Canyon area at the Southern vein area, and the Protectora vein at the Northern vein area. El Tigre is reporting assay results from the El Tigre Viejo canyon and Gold Hill area below. Assay results from the Espuelas Canyon area and the Protectora vein will be released as they become available for publication.

The following map shows the areas in relation to the current resource (shown in purple) as defined by the National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101").

The intention of the sampling program at the El Tigre Viejo canyon and Gold Hill area of the Southern vein area was to support the results from the Company's Preliminary Feasibility Study for the El Tigre Silver & Gold Project, Municipio De Nacozari De Garcia, Sonora, Mexico ("PFS") filed on SEDAR August 15, 2013. The Mineral Resources for the Project, are estimated by HRC to be 9.875 million tonnes grading an average of 0.630 g/t Au and 39.7 g/t Ag totaling 24.713 million ounces of EqAg classified as Indicated Mineral Resources with an additional 7.042 million tonnes grading an average of 0.589 g/t Au and 31.1 g/t Ag totaling 16.075 million ounces of EqAg classified as Inferred Mineral Resources. The base case estimated mineral resource is based on a 50 g/t silver equivalent ("AgEq") cut-off grade.

The Mineral Resources are reported in accordance with NI 43-101 and have been estimated in conformity with generally accepted Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum "Estimation of Mineral Resource and Mineral Reserves Best Practices" guidelines. Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. There is no certainty that all or any part of the Mineral Resource will be converted into Mineral Reserves.

The following tables summarize the significant assay results in the Gold Hill and El Tigre Viejo canyon area in the Southern vein system at El Tigre (widths reported are not true widths):

Note 1: All intervals reported as core length in metres.
Note 2: Channel samples on road cuts stated in composite intervals.
Note 3: Silver Equivalent (Ag Eq) is calculated using a 60 to 1 ratio of the dollar value of Ag and Au (Ag + Au x 60).

The sampling program by El Tigre was designed to support the work reported in the PFS as well as providing guidance for geological work necessary to identify drill targets. The sample results are not representative of the true thickness at the locations sampled. The results confirm the presence of a wider zone of alteration/stockwork containing anomalous gold surrounding the veins with higher silver grades within the prospect area and support further work in exploring and developing the southern El Tigre Vein system.

"We are pleased with the progress that our team has made, as led by Country Manager Jose Velazquez," said Stuart Ross, El Tigre Silver's President and CEO. "The initial resource calculation was published in a NI 43-101 Report in August 2013 and was based on a 1.2 kilometre section of the Southern vein system at the EL Tigre property. We anticipate that after analysis of all of the assays from this program we will be in a position to plan our next drill program which will identify targets for further exploration activity."
